Come and celebrate Visakha Puja, The Buddha’s Birthday, on May 10th at our Wednesday Evening Meditation at 7 pm.
After Meditation we will light candles and while chanting walk around the Temple 3 times.
Visakha Puja, Buddha’s Birthday is a major Buddhist festival celebrated by all the Buddhists throughout the world, with great ceremonial rituals. This day actually memorializes the birth, enlightenment (nirvana) and passing away (Parinirvana) of the Lord Gautama Buddha on one day. In each case, these events took place on the full-moon day in May, when the moon is in the Visakha asterism, which is why the day is called Visakha Puja.
